The Bison
By Padraic Colum
HOW great a front is thine—
A lake of majesty!
Assyria knew the sign:
The god-incarnate King.
A lake of majesty!        5
The lion’s drowns in it:
And thy placidity—
A moon within that lake!
As if thou still dost own
A world, thou takest breath:        10
Earth-shape, and strength of stone,
A Titan-sultan’s child.
